To go along with the clutch shot, Jokic also recorded a triple-double in the game. He scored a game-high 29 points along with 11 rebounds and 10 assists, as well as a steal.
The Nugget’s Twitter account used the opportunity to push Jokic’s All-Star bid, and at last count, he stood in 7th place for frontcourt players out of the West.
Denver’s victory pushed the Nuggets to 27-12, owners of the best record in the Western Conference. The Heats loss dropped them to 19-20.
The Nuggets next game will come against the Los Angeles Clippers on Thursday afternoon, which will be a preview of a potential playoff matchup. Jokic will look to build off a terrific game and lead his team to victory once again.
